Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Fight Booking Roundup: Koscheck vs. Daley, Kongo vs. Buentello, + More

(‘Why, Anthony? I trusted you!’)

Today many people agreed to fight many other people for money at a later date, and as tedious as it is to run through all the fights that you’ll eventually learn about one way or another anyway, we might as well drag ourselves through it one more time:

Josh Koscheck announced via Twitter today that he will fight Paul "Semtex" Daley in a "co main event" bout at UFC 113 on May 1st.  Daley has been grumbling about wanting a crack at Koscheck lately, and Koscheck responded by tweeting, "[t]his kid is going 2 get what he’s asking 4. XOXO"  Wait a minute, are we sure Koscheck’s Twitter wasn’t hacked by a fourteen year-old girl?

- Also at UFC 113, there’s talk that Kimbo Slice could get his first real test in the UFC against fellow TUF 10 castmember Matt Mitrione.  Some sources have confirmed that the bout has been verbally agreed to, but Mitrione recently refuted that story.  Then again, we all know how cagey "Meathead" can be when he gets to playing mind games.  The big question surrounding UFC 113 now is whether it will still go down on the planned date at the planned venue.  With Floyd Mayweather considering a bout on the same night, the UFC is said to be mulling over a few different options.

"UFC on Versus" continues to become more awesome, despite having the laziest name of any UFC event since UFC 76: Knockout.  In an attempt to add a little more stand-and-bangitude to the card, Paul Buentello and Cheick Kongo have been tapped to square off against one another on the televised portion of the event.  On the prelims, Spencer Fisher and Duane Ludwig will try to hurt each other solely for the enjoyment of the Broomfield, Colorado crowd.

– Lastly, MMA Weekly reports that Leonard Garcia will attempt to get back in the win column against Diego Nunes at the WEC’s March 6 event at Columbus, Ohio’s Nationwide Arena.  If that date and venue sound familiar, it’s because the UFC has been making it a regular stop to capitalize on the fake-tanned throng of young muscle enthusiasts attending the Arnold Classic that same weekend.  This year they’ve decided to leave it to their little brother organization, but the jury’s still out on whether the WEC can pull a crowd big enough to fill that joint.

I'm surprised by the number of people who think Daley is going to knock out koscheck. I haven't seen his takedown defence but I don't think it'll be easy for him to stay off his back for long. Has anyone seen him against a good wrestler?

I can see a bit of a pattern of submission losses which suggests he's not that good at anything that isn't smashing people in the face. Time will tell though.

It's kind of odd that I feel Koscheck probably deserves a title shot more than most people, but I'd really hate to see him win. And it's also kind of odd that an event called "knockout" did not yeild a single ko/tko.

I'm gonna call out the Koscheck-Kongo-Mitrione trifecta. I wanted to pick Kimbo, but then my trifecta would be KKK. If there is one thing that I strive for, it is political correctness! I hope no one was offended.
UFC fan- January 18, 2010 at 10:02 pm
I wanna see Kos get his mulatto ass knocked the fuck out.
And I like Kimbo, at least he tries, and he isn't half as stupid as the internet made him out to be.
I thought he was the smartest one in a shitty season full of shitty fighters.
Smitty- January 18, 2010 at 9:55 pm
Well first they'd have to pull the cock out of their mouths, but since they enjoy it being there so, I doubt they'll stop the hating (or ragging as you call it).

Secondly, I think the winner of the Kos/Semtex fight will fight GSP for the title next, and I like both of those fights regardless of the outcome of the first.
BreastFeDD- January 18, 2010 at 9:14 pm
what will it take for everybody to stop ragging on kimbo???

Mitrione/Kimbo is a fight Kimbo can't win.
Peter Griffin- January 18, 2010 at 6:09 pm
Double knockout, you got it.
MediumRare- January 18, 2010 at 5:39 pm
As tedious as it is I'm going to drop the comment that I can't wait for Kos and Semtex to tangle.

Also cannot help but look forward to Buentello and Kongo throw fists at one anothers' grills until someone's knees stop working.

I have mixed emotions about Kimbo and Mitrione. Prolly 'cause one is too scared about his knees and the other is bound to be on Prozac by now. Is a double-knockout too much to ask for from these pair?

That picture is the exact moment that caused Ben Folkes to get Logan and that blond chick fired.
